Scholars, are there actually non-Google alternatives to Google Scholar?

Hi new scholars!

Can't believe I haven't done one for ages, so here goes:

⚕️medical student who is really enjoying it at the moment

🚑 uni-wise, interested in pre-hospital/emergency medicine

🔬 casually interested in and social determinants of health and 🎮 narrative-based games

🎻 plays viola

so, yesterday, i put together a list of nazi instances i had blocked. that post has been boosted over 60 times. that's cool, i'm glad i did something useful.

but i can't do that kind of thing if i can't eat. my post about needing money for food has been boosted ten times.

if you appreciate and value the work i put into notifying everyone about where the fash are and you have some money to spare, please pay me.

if you can't give, please always boost.

Yesterday someone asked "how do you deal with [all my responsibilities]?"

Truthfully, I don't know

Partly I felt bad about not having done "enough" last year; partly I just got on with it and only noticed now that I'm all kinds of tired and actually not doing very well in some of these responsibilities

my downfall will come by emails I've drafted but forgot to send

this year is finally getting to me during exam period thanks i hate it (exams! and tickboxes! not medicine!)

gotta love a relatable question stem when it's giving a scenario on being tired all the time

I have 2 weeks Christmas break and 3 weeks summer... 😭

is this even uni?!?!

reminder to self:
📩 switch off notifications and alerts on phone and computer

yeah so I ended up having to pay for my summer class out of pocket so I am even broker than broke right now. wish I could take more commissions to make some $ but I'm also.. just exhausted 😥

also what do people think about front-loading stats about these issues? do you find it helps? does it confirm what you already know?
